    Yep he could've easily spent the summer lapping the bigger parks he'd usually visit.

    Visited a bunch of those parks in recent months as well (Towyn/Rhyl, the ones by Great Yarmouth) and its nice to visit these smaller parks and support them this year if we still want them to be open for years to come after losing over 3 months of their seasons.

    I live very close to Pettits, it’s a lovely little park, perfect for little ones. It has great potential.

    Yep, visiting and showcasing those smaller parks for supporting them is another reason why I like him a lot :) I still won`t blame him for the misbehaviour of other people...especially if those things happen behind his back. He`s a nice and social behaving guy spreading a lot of positivity...at least that´s what he is to me...and I`m thankful for entertaining me so well - especially during Covid-times....

    The only park his done twice since they reopened was Blackpool but the 2nd 1 was for the rides in the dark event. He must have done a lot mileage in his car since his passed his test. I do think Charlotte isn't into the rides as much as Shawn and went on the South West trip as there was parks with animals.

    I’m surprised that his only been to Alton Towers once since they reopened

    There hasn't been a whole lot of anything recently from TPW, which I do find somewhat strange.

    EDIT: Also, potentially yes? Thorpe's Oktoberfest event started a few days ago didn't it and there seems to have been no visit.

    He did 51 vlogs from 4th July to end of the summer holidays, he must be exhausted!

    That doesn't usually stop him to be fair, as many as that is.

    I guess this weekend will be the main thing, as it’s launch if Towers event, so can’t see him not going to it.

    I actually did think this was a possibility to be honest. Not denying he’ll be tired, but it’s just strange because he never seems to have a gap this long without going anywhere.

    I mean he did 20 parks in three weeks last year spending 21 days and he drove 8 hours from Six Flags Over Texas to Silver Dollar City. Now that's what I call tiring!

    That was a mistake and he has admitted that himself. By the end, he got too tired which stopped him enjoying the parks and meant that he complained more than he should have done.

    Maybe there is something with Merlin? I just find it strange that his local park, the park that started it all off for him, has a brand new event starting today for the first time in ages, yet he's in Scotland? Obviously, just speculation but I just find it odd. Alternatively, he's been saying on tweets he doesn't know if they're covering events this year (ie Oktoberfest, Scarefest, Fright Nights)

    I think there may be. It's very rare that he misses the first day of Merlin events, especially considering that Oktoberfest is something Merlin haven't done before.
